COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial saison. Our special yeast strain gives this beer a little funkiness and is accented with tellicherry black peppercorns and orange peel. At 9% abv this is probably one of the strongest summer beers you will encounter. The boozy note adds to the overall flavor of this beer. This is the deep end of the fun pool, please use the buddy system.

16 oz can from notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have bready malts, mild funk, citrus fruits, orange zest, peppery spice, decent combination of flavors, just a hint of booze, this one works pretty well.

burg326 (5266) - Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Poured a golden color with aromas of light funk, peppercorns, some light hay, and a touch of bitter peel. Flavors are the same with some light orange peel, with a decent amount of funk, not over the top, just enough and doesn’t lose those saison qualities.

Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma of honey, citrus, wheat. Taste is light tart, orange zest and citrus, followed by booze and honey sweet. Body is medium to rich and creamy smooth with soft carbonation.

mansquito (5204) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Farmhouse, Chicago tap: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is winey with some smells resembling a sour ale and the residue is funk. Taste is a little sweet. Nice and tangy in its own right. A bit on the sweet side for sure. Lingering aftertaste.

Can. Lactic lemon, peppercorn, and bready malt aroma. Medium yellow with small head. Sweet milky lemon, black pepper, and bready malt flavor. Light bitter herbal orange peel finish. Pleasant - strong pepper presence.

firstsip (733) - Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Can. Unintentional aging. An interesting sweetness with the age. That nice peppery quality when fresh mellows into an almost barleywine style sweetness with a year or more on it.

Had this from the bar in Whole Foods in Ann Arbor, which is pretty cool feature. Fairly dry finish, high carbonation. Spicy aroma, fruits in the middle.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Pour out of 16 oz can, hazy golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, zest, lots of peppery notes into some pear, slight peach, hints of earth into a bit of grass, slight bready, biscuity notes. Taste was a mix of dough, yeast, spicy notes with pepper, some coriander into a bit of pear, white fruits, some bread, finishing slightly dry, slightly spicy.
